The cylindrical necks 173 protrude through corresponding holes 181 and are exposed outside the metal shield 18.
  • It is noted that since the electrical connector assembly [0031] 1 provides a common housing 11 for the terminal groups 12, 13, 14, the occupied space of the electrical connector assembly 1 on the printed circuit board is apparently decreased. The alternately arranged structure of the cavities 119 is also helpful to minimize the occupied space of the electrical connector assembly 1. In addition, since the mating ports 17 are assembled to the housing 11 instead of being integrally formed with the housing 11, each mating port 17 can be dyed with different colors more conveniently than the integral structure.
  • It is to be understood, however, that even though numerous characteristics and advantages of the present invention have been set forth in the foregoing description, together with details of the structure and function of the invention, the disclosure is illustrative only, and changes may be made in detail, especially in matters of shape, size, and arrangement of parts within the principles of the invention to the full extent indicated by the broad general meaning of the terms in which the appended claims are expressed.
